"ASML's second-quarter operational performance was as planned, excluding the impact of Cymer, which we were pleased to include as an ASML company per 30 May after having received all the regulatory approvals for the acquisition. Our foundry and logic customers continue to prepare for the lithography-intensive 20-14 nanometer (nm) technology nodes, to be used for next-generation mobile electronic devices. During the second quarter we started to see additional demand from DRAM customers, driven by a healthy mobile DRAM memory market, which could potentially drive 2013 full-year sales to a level of up to EUR 5 billion, excluding Cymer sales. With regards to the development of the EUV platform, scanner imaging and overlay performance improved to levels where we are now engaging with customers on a strategy for an insertion targeted at the 10nm logic node. The first NXE:3300B systems are in the process of shipment and installation at customer sites, as we progress to improve the performance of the light source. In the second quarter, we established good performance, stability and reliability of the pre-pulse source concept at up to 55 Watts, and we therefore remain confident in our target of 70 wafers per hour productivity in 2014," said Peter Wennink, President and Chief Executive Officer of ASML.
The accounting impact of the preliminary purchase price allocation and the Cymer consolidation negatively impacted the Q2 gross margin by 1.2 percentage points and the net income margin by 2.1 percentage points.
